Here's something positive: If Reed and the boys come up with 5000 ounces of gold it will mean at least $6 million plus the gem quality factor which would multiply that number.

It's absolutely amazing how little acknowledgement the uninformed public places on our Company's prospects with all of our proven gold properties. Our fortunes are just around the corner and may come any day now, when least expected. It's just a matter of time and WE ARE DUE!

The largest high grade pocket ever found in California was pulled out of the 16-1 and was worth about $134 million at today's price.

Everyone! (Big Al, Bluejay and of course Scoop)

It's time to turn our heads, our focus, from negative to Positive, REGARDLESS of our adversity!

We do this in our personal lives, every day. We wake up knowing that we are in command of our own destiny. Right?!!!

We KNOW that success isn't defined by what others suggest....nor by what others throw down in front of us.

IT IS TIME to direct our energy to the positive, inevitable, right-in-front-of us success.

Can you see it, RIGHT THERE?? It is.

Increasing unproductive government hiring, more controlling rules and regulations, courts not protecting the Constitution, increased taxation in proping up a degrading power base and no more Rule of Law, it's all in the linked article below by Martin Armstrong:

To Rick, As I was telling a friend of mine, Ed Smith, the brother of Smoky Smith that owned Black Barts welding, that I would be moving to a mine up on Kanaka Creek over upper Tyler Foote, he replyed, oh, thats the one the Swiss Engineers bolted to the side of the mountain to stabilize it when they built it. When you look at the side of the wall from a curve you can still see the bolts and plates they used. Sadly, Ed, and his brother Clarence (Smoky) Smith have died, I miss them, but when I drive upper Tyler to Foote's crossing I remember those words. Big Al

I was a guest speaker at the Sierra Fund conference in Nevada City on May 3, 2012.
Below is the synopsis:


Did you know that America’s oldest gold mining company operates the Sixteen to One mine about one hour from the Miners Foundry in Nevada City? Michael M Miller, president of Original Sixteen to One Mine speaks about the past, present and future of gold. He discusses reasons why and how the Sixteen to One survived through the tough years for gold miners, the Company’s current operation and its plans for leadership and the exciting outlook for the next decade PLUS DETAILS ABOUT THE UPCOMING MINE TOUR. A view from inside the Sierra Nevada turns feelings into facts, dreams into reality. It is safe but your feet get wet.

Sixteen to One mine is an high-grade, underground, traditional, gold deposit with one significant exception: the concentration (pockets) of gold in white quartz is so concentrated it’s measured in ounces per pound. It is one of the richest concentrated gold deposits in the world. Alleghany is recognized as the last gold mining camp in California, a place where history meets the present.

His focus:
GOLD MINING IN THE 21st CENTURY in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Northern California! Is it beneficial to our communities? Will it bring lasting harm to our environment? Is gold mining history relevant today? Why are people upset with natural resource industries?



Questions are encouraged on all gold and mining related topics: health concerns; government regulating too much or too little; speculation, investment or a gamble; social/economic benefits or losses.”

This nonprofit took a questionable position last year entitled “Legacy of Toxic Mining in the Sierra Nevada”. Of the sixty speakers, only three of us offered any rebuttal to the exaggerated positions. I was invited back and again too the only rebuttal to the gloom and fear of abandoned mines in the Sierra Nevada, which they now named, “Reclaiming the Sierra”. The organization is sincere and well-meaning but sorely out of touch with real fear for this mountain environment: FIRE.

My talk closed saying, “if you really want help the Sierra Nevada spend your time and money on forest restoration. The Sierra Nevada is in grave danger from fire not abandoned mines.” The overzealous environmentalist has placed our forest in eminent danger. Their position has been: No cutting anything. The understory is over grown and a fire hazard. Poor trees are left to take water and space from healthy trees. The question of fire is not “if” but “when”. They call themselves progressive activists. They are not thinking progressively. They may be smart enough to change. Ignorance is the enemy. Enlightenment is the solution.

Michael Miller's message below rings a loud bell!

I have seen the Chinese walls that extend 1000-ft below the one-lane treacherous decent into the Kanaka Creek on Tyler Foote Crossing (scariest road I've ever driven) and peek over the edge with wondrous abandonment:

How did they do that??

Michael's message below brings forth the message that historical knowledge must be nurtured, lest be lost.

It takes a strong will, unfathomable strength of character and will, to even go underground and break rock....I only know this because I have only witnessed it, a very few times first-hand, and nothing close to the reality is takes....scared the crap outta me to even live it for a few hours....

The only, ONLY way this knowledge can be shared, the wisdom passed along for future exploration, empowered by the passion it takes to even try, is to have the freedom to do so.

Our Company has been aware of the following, discussed it and planned to mitigate the conclusions expressed by the thought expressed below by Ahead of the Heard. The Sixteen to One will overcome the threats due to our foresight and circumstances.

A combination of mass retirements and increasing natural resource demand from emerging economies has created a crisis in the resource extraction sector - one which is definitely not on investor’s radar screens.
Currently there is a “massive talent gap” that is going to get worse because the global mining industry is experiencing the biggest wave of workforce retirements in 70 years - the oldest baby boomers turned 65 years old in 2011.
The Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MIHRC) has recently said that about 40% of the resource extraction industry’s workforce is at least 50 years old and one third of them are expected to retire by 2022. .
Increased resource demand is driving demand for skilled workers. A shortage of skilled workers was the second biggest business risk for mining in 2011 (as it was in 2010) and is forecast to be the number two risk (resource nationalism/country risk is the number one risk) for miners again in 2012. In the coming years a lack of skilled workers is going to be the major cause for concern in the resource extraction industry.
“Given the aging profile of the current workforce and a lack of engineers and geologists with enough experience, the labor resourcing requirements for new mining projects at various stages of development across the globe are simply not going to be met. Production targets and project deadlines are inevitably going to slip. The time taken to train a mining professional can be up to five years, but it is the candidate with around ten years experience who is in particularly short supply. A failure by the mining industry to recruit and train during the tough times in the 1990s, when the price of metals plummeted, has led to particular shortages of mid-career professionals.” Mining Global Employment Review 2011, Faststream Recruitment

Just when we need it the most the mining industry is starting to suffer a massive loss of accumulated wisdom, knowledge and field experience. This loss of experience, when combined with labor shortages, means future mineral output will be constrained and that has bullish implications for prices.

That is one the remarks of wisdom to reality that I have had the pleasure of reading. We need Government to get out of the way.

From the Casey Wire:

If history has taught one certain lesson, it is that the less fettered an economy, the better humankind is able to do what it does best: run from trouble and run toward opportunity. In this way mistakes are quickly resolved and progress assured.

Conversely, the deeper the muck of regulation, mandates, taxes, subsidies and other bureaucratic meddling, the slower we humans are in following our natural instincts until the point that progress is slowed or even stopped.

It is said that history doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes. In the current circumstances, it appears that enough time has passed that current generations have completely forgotten the critical connection between the ability of humans to freely pursue their aspirations and economic progress.

In a 10/2/11 interview with Jim Puplava, Martin Armstrong said the following concerning lawmakers:

Martin: Well unfortunately they’re not economists. Most of them are not even business people. Most of them tend to be probably the dominant profession of lawyers. And they have this attitude that they can pass a law and everybody has to comply. But that is not the case. You can pass a law and say 65 miles an hour and nobody can go above that. I mean, we are always looking at more and more regulation, and the problem is that we had this economic decline and then the natural response from someone is to say it wasn’t regulated enough.

We had more than ten agencies regulating the CDSs that collapsed. Not a single one did anything to prevent a central crisis in this country. We keep adding layers and layers and layers of regulation, but they simply do not work. I mean the SEC has not prevented one economic recession, one economic decline. We have too many agencies and that is the problem of why they created Homeland Security because they admitted that a lot of these agencies had information on 9/11. Even the people who were from the first attack on the world trade center had drew the world trade center on the walls of their jail cells with planes going into it a year before. They took pictures all kinds of stuff, but nobody does anything.

You have too many agencies and so they create Homeland Security supposedly to sit on top of all these agencies to get the information, and we are just so over regulated. I mean, just have one agency to do this. Why do we need so many different ones and they all contradict each other and then they compete and won’t share information. So we seem to defeat everything we do, but the answer is always to not improve what we have, but always add another agency until the point we have so many people running around, it is crazy.

September 12, when I initiated this topic...when the CDAA was riding rough-shod over the mine with criminal intent.

Corruption doesn't change course, does it?

Most instructive to recognize, throughout this battle against obstructionist non-elected, imbedded, corrupt and criminal regulators is the stark reality that the former CDAA rep is holding an active position in the EPA.

Where is the integrity of the California AG? Or the former, now Gov, AG???

Hey Jerry, do some home-work to realize what crap you've decided to ignore. Your reputation and integrity is at stake....

Summary: politically appointed adjenda-driven regulators will never be held accountable for criminal actions when the head of the snake doesn't look back into the crap in its intestines.

Mike, in my very humble opinion you did the right thing with SMARA. Continued litigation, especially with the government, is a heavy pall that can prevent forward progress. I expect to learn a lot more about SMARA in May. Looking forward to meeting you, Ron

You have an obligation out of respect to thoroughly read and digest the gift that our founding father bestowed upon us, the people in our Constitution. The following article by Martin Armstrong is one of the best works I have ever read concerning the people's rights that have been slighted by some of the "high priest" judges that have been appointed to the Court in the past along with the Congress of mostly lawyers who have done no better.

April 11, 2012. Realizing it is better to bend than break, the Company signed a stipulated agreement from the Department of Conservation to end litigation seeking damages for alleged violations of California’s Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA). When asked why he signed, President Miller said that a lean compromise is better than a fat lawsuit and quoted the great American statesman, Samuel Johnson, “Life cannot subsist in society but by reciprocal concessions”. See entry below on 9-20-11 for more information about SMARA.

Here's another shaft job by government you might not hear about. This time it's the State of South Carolina reported by the Internatonal Forecaster this morning:

Shawana Busby does not seem like the sort of customer who would be at the center of a major bank's business plan. Out of work for much of the last three years, she depends upon a $264-a-week unemployment check from the state of South Carolina. But the state has contracted with Bank of America to administer its unemployment benefits, and Busby has frequently found herself incurring bank fees to get her money.

To withdraw her benefits, Busby, 33, uses a Bank of America prepaid debit card on which the state deposits her funds. She could visit a Bank of America ATM free of charge. But this small community in the state's rural center, her hometown, does not have a Bank of America branch. Neither do the surrounding towns where she drops off her kids at school and attends church.

She could drive north to Columbia, the state capital, and use a Bank of America ATM there. But that entails a 50 mile drive, cutting into her gas budget. So Busby visits the ATMs in her area and begrudgingly accepts the fees, which reach as high as five dollars per transaction. She estimates that she has paid at least $350 in fees to tap her unemployment benefits.

"It really boggles my mind," she said. "This bank is taking little bits of money out of thousands of pockets, including mine."

Bluejay and everyone: government is the problem...lest we not forget the other half: politically appointed judges with bias toward those that put them there. Its akin to two wolves and a lamb voting on what's for dinner.

Because government is the PROBLEM, they live in a state of denial and cannot correct the situation for they cannot objectively look at themselves. Instead, they attack the people.

The regulating Federal agencies of the SEC and the CFTC are in the same camp as the Water Board, abusers of power.

In the following excerpt from the November 4, 2011 article entitled "Is Western Civilization on the Verge of the Equivalent to the Fall of Rome?" Martin Armstrong spells out the failings of important market overseers.

"Then, if we look at the current global economy, the catalyst for the immediate debt crisis began with the abuse of credit which emerged from the New York Investment Banks that were primarily regulated NOT by the Federal Reserve, but by the SEC and CFTC! The SEC and CFTC are directly responsible for everything instead of merging and reforming them, they are handed more power to abuse.

They regulated the Investment Banks and derivatives. They were supposed to be the first line of defense. Yet, they have NEVER managed to ever prevent a single crisis or scandal from Madoff to the collapse of Lehman and Bear Stearns not to mention the quick and dirty sale of Merrill Lynch to prevent that from going into oblivion. They have served no purpose and protected the very people that created the economic crisis. Even the Pro-NY Banks mouthpiece Bloomberg News reported on October 28th, 2011: “The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s internal watchdog has castigated the agency for missing the Bernard Madoff fraud, spotlighted employees who viewed online pornography and called for a criminal probe into the ethics of the SEC’s former top lawyer.”
